I took Claritin 24-hour at about 6:45 p.m. Is it okay to take Lunesta for sleep tonight?

There can be a minor interaction, actually an additive side effect problem, between Claritin (loratadine) and Lunesta (eszopiclone). Although an interaction is possible, these drugs are often used together. You may feel drowsy or more tired when taking these drugs together. Do not drive or operate machinery until you know how these drugs affect you.

Take the Claritin product early in the morning on the days you take this product. Take the Lunesta only if you cannot fall asleep at night.
